Works to install new junior play equipment will start at the beginning of September!
We are very excited to announce that the Penlee Play Park will be getting a makeover this Autumn!
Brand new junior play equipment is going to be installed with multi-use areas that will enable children who are wheelchair users or who use other mobility aids to join in the fun.
What new equipment is going to be installed?
- 5 new towers
- Climbing walls
- Wheelchair accessible slides
- Sensory Panel
- Net bridge
- Clatter bridge
Chair of the Leisure & Amenities Committee, Councillor Nicole Broadhurst, said “this new play equipment is a wonderful improvement – making sure that the park is accessible for all – and also to make sure that we have a great space for our community for the future.”
Take a look at these artist’s impressions of what the new play equipment will look like:

When will the works start?
The works will begin on Monday 5 September and are expected to last for 3 weeks.
The infant play equipment, including the wheelchair roundabout and basket swing, will be closed for a few days at the start and end of the works but otherwise will remain open. We will keep everyone updated about when these closures will happen through signage in the park and on our social media channels.
